Till last year, opportunities for formal postgraduate education in palliative care in India used to be limited to 10 doctors every year for a country of 1.3 billion people!
Dr Sushma Bhatnagar informs us that from this year, the number rises to 23 (14 for MD and 9 for DNB – Diplomate of National Board of Examinations – a new course being sanctioned this month).
The details of institutions are given here. Thank you Dr Sushma for providing this list.
Great way to celebrate World Hospice and Palliative Care Day!
